Paint plastic straps on yard furniture?

Irma_StPeteApril 10, 2006

Can I beautify and prolong the life of the plastic straps on a freeby lounger from a neighbor? The maroon colored straps are sun (?) damaged on the top side - dark, so not shiny, and pitted. Undersides are shiny & nice. I scrubbed it. I need to know what type paint or application will be helpful. THANKS!

I'm not sure any paint would really work because as the straps bend and flex when someone sits on it, the paint would probably crack. I'm thinking you could just put a pretty throw or beach towel on it for summer.

Do they sell replacement straps? I think the cheapest and easiest is socks suggestion - cover with a towel or make/purchase seat cushions.

Could the straps be taken off and turned over? Are they brighter on the bottom and back of it?

Just a thought.

Or just turn the whole thing over with the good side up and tell people it's a new style! LOL...just kidding, of course.

I think that, in the light of the fascination that moderns seem to have with new, especially "innovative" stuff ...

... Socks12345's idea (did I count correctly?) sounds like a good one to me.

Her second one, that is.
